Intelligence Community (IC) programs include the resources (money and manpower) to accomplish IC goals and responsibilities as defined by the U.S. Code and Executive Order 12333. IC programs are funded through the: (1) National Intelligence Program (NIP), which covers the programs, projects, and activities of the IC oriented towards the strategic requirements of policymakers, and (2) Military Intelligence Program (MIP), which funds defense intelligence activities intended to support tactical military requirements and operations. The Director of National Intelligence (DNI) and the Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence (USD(I)) manage the NIP and MIP, respectively, under different authorities.
The IC comprises 17 elements, two of which are independent, and 15 of which are component organizations of six separate departments of the federal government. Many IC elements and most intelligence funding reside within the Department of Defense (DOD). This is the formal structure of the U.S. Government National and Defense Intelligence apparatus, yet in reality the U.S. Intelligence Community is much more than that, encompassing hundreds of overlapping federal, state and local agencies as well as defense and IT contractors in private sector.
According to the report’s estimates IT represents about 70% of the Intelligence Community budget and the very significant portion of intelligence spending goes to the private sector.
